  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cups water
  • 1/4 Cup lemon juice
  • 12 Ounces frozen cranberries
  • 1 Teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1 Brie round (one pound), six-inch diameter
  • 1/4 Cup toasted pecans, chopped
  • Assorted crackers, for serving


In saucepan, combine sugar, 3/4 cup water, and lemon juice; bring to boil over medium heat. Stir in cranberries and return to boil. Cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes. Stir in orange zest; let cool completely. Score outer edge of Brie. 

Place grill plates on the grill. Use switch at bottom right rear of grill to make flat surface. Close cover and set cooking temperature to sear and cooking time for 3 minutes. Allow grill to preheat for 5 minutes.

Place brie on grill and close the cover; cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is heated through but not oozing. Transfer to a platter and spoon some of the cranberry sauce over top. Sprinkle with pecans and serve with crackers. 

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
